This Future Classroom Scenario has been developed as part of the Europeana DSI-2 project. The main objective of this scenario is to increase student concentration in natural history subjects study.
At this learning scenario basic natural history concepts are being gamified through the usage of a competitive two player memory match video game. Before the competitive game sessions begin students are introduced to the basic concepts and the world of natural history through a virtual digital tour of one of the most prestigious natural history museums, the London natural history museum. The multiplayer memory match game is an educational game combining the classic memory game of finding pairs with a quiz game, testing player’s acquired knowledge of natural history subjects. The game is a pilot application developed in the Europeana Creative project. Especially the game uses the Europeana Web Rest API in order to consume natural history collections digitized data offered by numerous museums that participate in the original Europeana project.
